About The Dining Room at Mirbeau – Skaneateles
The Mirbeau Dining Room serves breakfast, lunch and dinner offering global cuisine inspired by French speaking populations around the world. We use classic methods and source local, Finger Lakes organic, and regional produce, dairy and meats and focus on clean cuisine—no synthetics or preservatives–with healthful interpretations of classic French dishes. Have fun sharing sides to accompany your steaks or seafood. You might even find yourself having to defend your soufflé against others’ advances. Attire is relaxed and refined with no particular need to go with (or without) a jacket.
The place was beautiful. Everyone was great and a pleasure to deal with. The room was just perfect. I was not impressed with the food in the main dining room for the cost. The spa was great and just what we needed to relax and pamper.
The whole dining experience was great. It’s not something I could afford to do on a regular basis, but the entire Mirbeau experience can’t be beat for a special occasion.
We believe you were short staffed on Tuesday, October 16 for lunch as we were seated and then no one came to our table to take a drink order or greet us. This is very unusual for my experience with your organization. My friend had to get up and go to a server and ask why no one came to our table. She was somewhat surprised! However, she immediately took care of issue.
I ordered oysters and halibut as main dish. Oysters covered by an overwhelming array of something that was too much for the oysters, which need much simpler toppings. Halibut was extremely salty--almost inedibly so.
service was great. food was even better
Cheese infused bread and Sage Apple dessert were tasty and creative.
Anniversary dinner. The place bills itself as very high end, so when they define the attire as "relaxed and refined ... with or without a jacket", I wore dress pants, shirt and tie, and my wife bought a new dress. We were WAY over dressed! Everyone else walking around in shorts, tee-shirts, jeans, sandals, etc. Needless to say, we immediately felt out of place. Service was good, and the servers were nice, but it was hard not to feel a little patronized by the "don't you two look adorable" response. I'm sure they wanted it to feel special for us because we were clearly a couple who doesn't do this kind of thing very often, but it came off awkwardly because we were surrounded by people who apparently didn't think dropping $250 on a meal in a fancy setting was worth dressing up a little. Food was fantastic, as you'd expect. Everything from the salad made table side, to the entrees, dessert, and wine selection were absolutely delicious. I was a little put off when the bill came as they add an 18% service charge to the total of the bill. Is this supposed to be the tip? Do they think I won't leave a tip? Not sure, and already feeling too out of place to ask, we left a tip as well. Overall, the food was great, service was good, but the atmosphere was 'meh', and it was really expensive. It was an experience, but I don't know that I'll ever feel the need to go back.
When I called to make reservations, I asked if we could sit outside barring inclement weather and was told yes. I was asked if my party of 4 was celebrating a special occasion. I replied, "Yes! Three of us are celebrating birthdays in the next week, including my 50th. That's why we're driving 2 hours to enjoy lunch at Mirbeau!" The reservation-taker said she would make a note of our birthday celebrations and be sure our server recognized them. So I was supremely disappointed when not one word or mention was made of our birthdays. I was even more disappointed when our server, clearing dishes from our table, asked us to finish up and leave asap because "a wedding is happening on the bridge in 20 minutes and we have to have this entire deck cleared so no one will be in the wedding photos." When I asked for dessert menus so I could treat 2 of my guests to a birthday dessert, the server brought menus, but said we would not have time to order them and still have our table cleared before the wedding. She did welcome us to order desserts to go. When I made reservations and asked for an outside table, I should have been informed there would be a strict limit to the amount of time we were welcomed to sit outside and that we would be asked to leave before a scheduled wedding. Also, I should not have been asked if we were celebrating a special occasion if the occasion was not going to be recognized or acknowledged in any way. The four of us did not make a 4-hour round-trip drive to be treated in such a manner. What a huge let-down for my 50th birthday celebration and my friends' birthdays, as well. I was embarrassed, as I had asked them to let me treat them to somewhere special for their birthdays. Nearly 4 days later, I'm still feeling the sting of disappointment, frustration, and embarrassment.
The food was amazing. Staff Is friendly and attentive. We are already looking forward to our next visit. This is as close to French style food you can get.
The dining room seemed a bit short-staffed the evening we ate dinner there, but the service was still better than in many other restaurants. The food was fresh and well-prepared except for the fact that all 3 of us thought at least part of our entrees (the side vegetables or fish) were too salty. The soup of the day, tomato bisque, was excellent as were the desserts!
The food atmosphere and service was first class!! We will return
I cannot say enough about our dining experience at lunch last Friday. Everything was exceptional!!! The service, the atmosphere and the most especially the food. Can't wait to return!!
Molly was wonderful!
I bought a "Just a Day Away " package for my fiancee. She loved all of the spa services. She specifically said that she did not enjoy lunch. The salmon was not properly cooked The chocolate mousse style dessert was not very good, either. It's unfortunate that she liked the spa so much and disliked the lunch so much. I would be reluctant to buy her another package in the future for this reason.
My husband and I ate at the restaurant a few times during our Mirbeau stay. Both breakfast and dinner was very nicely presented, a lot of vegetables and nice variety. Everything was very tasty.
Food was outstanding. We r in 127. Extremely poor lighting. Needed to use my iPhone flashlight to set safe
